Who we are

The Electoral Commission is the independent body that regulates party and election finance, sets standards for well-run elections and encourages people to register to vote. This has been a busy and exciting time at the Commission, with a number of significant polls having taken place over the last 6 months: elections to the Northern Ireland Assembly in March; local government elections across GB in May; and the UK Parliamentary General Election.

The role

We are currently looking for a talented Executive Assistant to work in a small team supporting our Executive Team.  Previous experience in a similar role would be an advantage, but more importantly you will be self-motivated, pro-active and possess excellent administrative and IT skills

Your background

To be successful in this role, you will need to have:

  • Strong organisational and problem solving skills
  • An ability to prioritise and work quickly and effectively
  • Excellent IT skills, especially competent in the use of Microsoft Office
  • Good interpersonal skills and an ability to build strong collaborative working relationships with people at all levels
  • Good oral and written communication skills
  • Excellent attention to detail

The Electoral Commission offers excellent terms and conditions, including flexible working hours and the opportunity to join the Civil Service pension arrangements (dependent on scheme rules) which include a valuable range of benefits.
